HCA Virginia to Build Freestanding Emergency Care Facility in Loudoun County

StoneSpring Emergency Center to Open Summer 2013

Reston, Virginia, January 31, 2012 – HCA Virginia today announced that it will open a freestanding emergency center in 2013 on its StoneSpring Medical Campus in Loudoun County.

“Loudoun County officials have been clear in saying that the Route 50 corridor lacks adequate emergency care facilities,” said Tim McManus, President of HCA Virginia’s Northern Virginia Market and CEO of Reston Hospital Center. “By building StoneSpring Emergency Center, responding to that identified improving access to care for residents, and accelerating the development of our Route 50 medical campus.”

StoneSpring Emergency Center will be built on HCA Virginia’s StoneSpring Medical Campus, a 50-acre site located at the intersection of Gum Spring Road and Route 50. Groundbreaking is expected for summer 2012, and the $10 million facility is expected to open mid-year 2013. On that same site, HCA Virginia has been awarded a Certificate of Public Need to build 164-bed StoneSpring Medical Center. The medical center is scheduled to open December 2015, at which time the emergency center will become part of the hospital itself.

StoneSpring Emergency Center will have 12 bays and house a CT scanner and other technology needed to diagnose and treat patients with moderate to serious injuries and illnesses. Like a hospital emergency room, the 9,600-square-foot facility will be open 24 hours a day, staffed by physicians, nurses and other caregivers with specialty training in emergency care. It will accommodate ambulance traffic as well as walk-in patients.

Reston Hospital Center, which is HCA Virginia’s flagship facility in Northern Virginia, is currently undergoing a $65 million expansion that includes the addition of four operating rooms (bringing the total to 13) as well as the construction of a new LEED-certified medical office building (MOB) with environmentally friendly design features. The Reston project will be completed in stages over the next two to three years.

Reston Hospital Center is a 187-bed, acute-care medical and surgical facility founded in 1986. It has garnered high honors for attentive patient care and nursing excellence, receiving the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) prestigious Magnet Recognition Program® and as well as its BEACON Award for Critical Care Excellence™. The hospital is part of HCA Virginia, which has 13 hospital campuses, 13,500 employees and 3,200 affiliated physicians in the
commonwealth, as well as part of HCA Inc., a Nashville, Tenn.-based company that is the leading provider of healthcare services in America.
